On a June afternoon in 2016, a Cirrus SR20 carrying three occupants arrived in Houston’s busy Class B airspace to land at William P. Hobby airport. Miscommunication in the traffic pattern, three go-arounds, and ultimately, a departure from controlled flight resulted in a fatal crash near the airport.
The AOPA Air Safety Institute examines the circumstances of this accident and discusses how to recognize and avoid the mistakes that led up to the tragedy.
